What Exactly Is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation is the process of taking legal action against another party. In simple terms, the civil courts in the United States are a dispute-resolution system.

Civil litigation begins when one side (the plaintiff) files a lawsuit and claims that an individual or entity has failed to fulfill a legal duty that it had to the plaintiff. A classic example of civil litigation is a contract dispute — when one side claims the other side did not fulfill terms of an agreement.

Civil lawsuits can be filed in state or federal court.

Traits Of A Skilled Civil Litigation Attorney

Effective civil litigators possess a skill set that includes:

  • Ability to work and communicate effectively with a wide range of individuals, including clients, opposing attorneys and judges
  • Ability to persuade, both in written and oral arguments
  • Ability to negotiate effectively. Civil litigation is an ongoing process of negotiation. Civil cases are sometimes decided in a court trial, but the vast majority are resolved either before or even during trial.
  • Ability to assess risk. An effective attorney is able to spell out the options available to the client and the level of risk that each option represents.
  • Ability to develop creative solutions to difficult problems

On top of that, the attorneys at Jackson & Associates Law Firm also bring honesty, integrity, competence, creativity and passion.
